To have a second language is to possess a second soul

Alliance Francaise de Brisbane has organised some fantastic Holiday Workshops for Kids and Teens to be held at their premises at 262 Montague Road, West End from Monday 16 to Thursday 19 January, 2017.

To provide the best possible learning and fun environments the activities have been broken up into different age groups. The three courses and respective age groups are:

Once upon a time in Versailles...; for children aged from three to 11 years;
Get Ready FRENCH; for teens aged 14 and 15 years; and
Go FRENCH; for teens aged 16 and 17 years.

Once upon a time in Versailles…
During the course, the children will be taken on a virtual visit the biggest castle in the world and learn of the life Louis XIV led from dawn to dusk. In doing so they will be immersed in the French language as they learn about Louis' favourite animals, food, games, music and fashion.

Organisation for this course sees the children broken into two age groups to facilitate better learning environments. The groupings will be Les Petits, for children from 3 to 6 years of age and Les Grands, for children from 7 to 11 years of age.

No previous understanding of French is required and lucky children who already speak French will be in different groups to non-speakers.

Once upon a time in Versailles… will be held on Tuesday, 17 January commencing at 9.30am and running until 3.30pm.

Registration fee for each child is $150.00.

Register here for your child in the appropriate age group;
Les Petits, children from 3 to 6 years of age; and
Les Grands, children from 7 to 11 years of age.

Get Ready FRENCH
A course designed for students aged 12 to 14 years that supports the secondary school curriculum so it will expand the learner's vocabulary and structures on the themes studied at school.

Note: To attend the workshop there is a prerequisite for the student to have completed 100 to 200 hours of French language tuition.

So those who have completed grade 9 French, or more, will be placed into small groups where they will work on sentence structure and improving their oral skills. The workshop will be essentially conducted in French for the students to benefit from the immersion over the 4 days.

Get Ready FRENCH is set to commence on Monday, 16 January and run for 4 days until Thursday, 19 January. The daily workshops start at 9.00am and finish at 11.00am.

Registration fee per student is $200.00. Registration can be done online here.

This is a must to get a head start for the new year.


Go FRENCH
Has been developed for teenagers aged from 15 to 17 years of age who have completed grade 10 French. The workshops will be made up of small groups working on sentence structure and to improve oral skills.

Note: To attend the workshop there is a prerequisite for the student to have completed 200 to 400 hours of French language tuition.

Communications during the workshop will broadly be conducted in French to help the students benefit from immersing themselves completely in the language over the four days.

Attendance at the workshop will provide ongoing French students with a great head start for the new school year.

Go FRENCH workshops commence on Monday, 16 January and run for 4 days until Thursday, 19 January. The daily workshops are from 9.00am to 11.00am.

Registration fee per student is $200.00. Registration can be done online here.
